About Me

Hello and thanks for stopping by The Green Edition. I’m Laura, I’m originally from Scotland but living in Amsterdam in The Netherlands now with my husband and two miniature schnauzers. I became aware of the need for sustainability a few years ago while studying environmental science. I was interested in the environment but never actually stopped to think how I was impacting it. In my spare time from studying I would watch documentaries and read about different issues in the environment. I started to take small steps to implement positive changes. One of the issues I was most concerned about was my wardrobe. I started wearing a capsule wardrobe in autumn 2016, taking out everything that didn’t fit or didn’t work for me anymore. Now I only replace with new if I need something or feel it really works with my lifestyle. If you have any questions or want to work with me feel free to email laura@thegreenedtion.com, I’d love to hear from you.

  • What is the one piece of clothing that you couldn’t live without? 
For me its denim. It can be an incredibly intensive process to grow enough cotton to produce one pair of jeans. Followed with harsh dyes, chemicals, acids – all of which pollute the environment and can be detrimental to health of people producing the denim.

One way we can avoid this is to buy from ethical brands or buy secondhand. My top 5 options for buying ethical and sustainable denim are linked in the bio.
